Great bouldering Shoe They Just Run Small!

These shoes are great overall! The trax rubber is very sticky and has a nice sense of sensitivity to it. The toes very narrow though but I was expecting that for how aggressive these shoes fit are. The sizing is the only thing off about these, I had to got up a full 1.5 sizes up from my street shoe size to get the fit I was looking for. For reference I wear a EUR 43 (us 10) in the La Sportiva Mira VS, a US 10 in Red Chili Amp, a 11 in Evolv Luchador, and in the Nexxos I purchased I bought a 11.5 US. The Nexxos appear to run smaller than both the Luchador and Sharmas which I had tried on and was comfortable in an 11. My street shoe size is a 10 US (vans I wear a 10). I hope this can give you some gauge on the sizing of these shoes. There pretty much a slip on climbing shoe as the buckle only provides moderate amount of adjustment to the middle of the shoe. The materials seem nice and I have only had them for a week now and they appear to be holding up well. It has a synthetic upper with a leather heal so minimal to no stretch. Only small disappointment was that I wish the heal fit my foot a little more snug I get the classic "shoe fart" after doing heal hooks in them, but I couldn't even stand up without my foot going immediately numb in the 11's so that's the only issue I have had so far! Great for bouldering, nice edging, sticky rubber, and pretty good sensitivity right out of the box!
